At HuffPost Parents, we receive dozens of cute kid notes each week. They range from funny (intentionally or not) to sweet and even a little scary. When this one, submitted by mom Lisa Wilson, landed in our inbox, we were especially moved. Wilson says her 11-year-old son, Jonathan, wrote the "script" for a video about autism and then recorded it with the help of a friend.

Here, in Wilson's words, is a description of the project.
